Now that we have started evaluating our library collections and weeding some of the books, what can we do with these books?

Check out a few ideas in the articles below...

Find out if your teachers or students want these books?

Daniel Barrett and Vanessa Watson simply sent an email out to teachers and they were happy to come and get books!

Turn them into something cool! Old books make great additions to Makerspaces.

Students at Four Oaks, Smithfield Middle Cleveland Middle turn their books into holiday decorations for their libraries.
For more craft ideas, check out thousands of ideas on Pinterest! Also the articles below have great ideas.

Donate to schools affected by Hurricane Matthew

The boys and girls club in Selma lost all of their books; contact Leta Woodall to donate to them. 
We also have contacted Edgecombe and Robeson County to see how we could help them. We are still waiting for a response to develop a plan.

Remember to communicate with your stakeholders why you are getting rid of books. 

Emily Vann created a screencast to share her staff the Titlewise Analysis and to also include them in her collection development. Check out her video!

Save the books for the statewide, summer reading program,
